Where Philadelphia - - Where Now | Philadelphia -

The 72 stone steps lead­ing up to the east en­trance of the Philadel­phia Mu­seum of Art will for­ever be known as the “Rocky Steps.” Named for the iconic 1976 film, Rocky fa­mously fin­ished a train­ing run at the top of the steps. Re­cre­ate the scene with the same per­se­ver­ance as the Ital­ian Stal­lion, and once you fin­ish the climb, don’t for­get to take in the picturesque view of the Ben­jamin Franklin Park­way. Then, head back down the stairs to snap a photo with the hulk­ing statue of the fic­tional movie hero to com­mem­o­rate the ac­com­plish­ment. 2600 Ben­jamin Franklin Pkwy.
